Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

De­signs for the pro­posed re­con­struc­tion of a sec­tion of Bowen St, War­ragul have been re­leased for com­mu­nity re­view and feed­back.

The pro­posed works fo­cus on a sec­tion of Bowen St be­tween Sut­ton and Clif­ford Sts.

De­signs for the pro­posed re­con­struc­tion in­clude con­struc­tion of new kerb and chan­nel, con­struc­tion of a new 11.7 me­tre wide road pave­ment in­clud­ing road­side park­ing, and sur­face and un­der­ground drainage works.

Mayor Joe Gauci said coun­cil was keen to ad­dress­ing the key prob­lem ar­eas of one of War­ragul’s busy roads.

“The plans for the road re­con­struc­tion aim to ad­dress on­go­ing con­cerns in­clud­ing sig­nif­i­cant pave­ment fail­ures, road width and poor drainage along the east side of the road,” he said.

Res­i­dents can view the pro­posed de­sign plans on coun­cil’s web­site.

Sub­mis­sions and feed­back close on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 1 at 5pm.

Coun­cil has sent let­ters and a copy of the pro­posed de­sign to res­i­dents who will be di­rectly im­pacted by the works, invit­ing their feed­back on the de­signs.

“We want to of­fer lo­cal res­i­dents a first-hand look at the pro­posed road re­con­struc­tion works that will im­prove safety and ac­cess all road users.

“Feed­back will be re­viewed and con­sid­ered be­fore the de­tailed de­signs are fi­nalised for the ten­der­ing process,” he said.

Coun­cil aims to have the re­con­struc­tion de­signs fi­nalised in De­cem­ber 2017 with works will be­gin soon af­ter.

This project is listed as one of the three road re­con­struc­tion projects to be funded in the cur­rent cap­i­tal works bud­get, along with Rollo St in Yar­ragon and Buln Buln Rd in Drouin.
